HIXSON, HAMILTON CO., TN (WRCB) A Hixson woman escaped a dog attack Sunday afternoon, but the family's pet was not so lucky.

Nancy Crittenden says two dogs came into her yard on Northern Hills Drive and attacked her dog "Bear".

Bear, who has three legs, was not able to get away.
He has deep bite marks on his neck and hip.

Crittenden says she yelled at the Pitbull and German Shepard to stop, and that's when one of the dogs turned on her.

Crittenden's husband came home and grabbed a gun.

He fired several shots hitting the Pitbull.

Both dogs lived and were taken by McKamey animal officers.

McKamey officers say if the dogs owner is identified, he or she could face charges.
